Simone Biles, Madison Kocian and Gabby Douglas are looking to add more Olympic gold to the U.S. Gymnastic team’s already impressive haul. The darlings of U.S. gymnastics will have a big day on the vault and uneven bars Aug. 14 and here’s how you can watch it all via Live Stream.
Go Simone go! Olympic superstar Simone Biles, 19, is looking to leave Rio with her third gold medal when she competes in the individual vault competition and she could easily own this event. She has the highest score going into the finals, with a nearly flawless 16.050 in the qualification round. Meanwhile, her teammates Madison Kocian, 19 and Gabby Douglas, 20, will be duking in out for gold in the uneven parallel bars competition. Simone’s event will go down at approx. 1:47pm EST while the bars event follows at 3:21 EST. CLICK HERE TO WACH THE LIVE STREAM OF U.S. WOMEN’S GYMNASTICS COVERAGE.
Simone has totally dominated women’s gymnastics in the 2016 games, with her amazing scores in all four disciplines helping lead the U.S. women’s team to the all-around gold medal. She followed that up several days later by completely owning the individual all-around competition to win the most prestigious gold in gymnastics. She could make it a total of three Rio victories on Aug. 14 as she is expected to totally crush her competition on the vault.
Madison and Gabby will be keeping more U.S. gold hopes alive in the uneven parallel bars competition, where Madison currently leads following her impressive qualifications score of 15.866, but Russia’s Aliya Mustafina, 21, is some stiff competition for Maddy’s specialty discipline and will be sure to come on strong. Gabby also made the cut for the event, and is hoping to redeem herself with a medal after week that saw her image take several big hits. After the team all-around win, she appeared disrespectful when she didn’t put her hand over her heart during the National Anthem, even though our other four girls did. She later was shown looking like an unsportsmanlike sourpuss when Simone claimed the individual gold, barely clapping and refusing to stand and cheer.
